Legendary Pictures has answered questions from fans that were Tweeted for the company’s Mass Effect movie panel at the San Diego Comic-Con but they were unable to answer then. The company posted the answers on their site in early August, but they were not really noticed until now. Here is the rundown:
Q: Will it just be an adaptation of the first game, second game, or a completely new story?
A: It will be a completely new story
Q: How are you going to address the element of ‘choice’ that the players have in the game?
A: A movie narrative is different than gameplay. There won’t be a choice aspect to this film, just a normal film narrative.
Q: Will it be a trilogy?
A: We are really focused on making this a great movie, so we’ll see where it takes us. We have to get the first one right to know whether there will be more.
Q: Will Seth Green portray Joker (that character he voiced in the game?)
Q: Will the movie be focused on Shepard?
Q: If the movie is focused on Shepard, will it be the male Shepard or the female Shepard?
Q: Can you give any hints to potential casting?
A: No. Stay tuned.
Q: Will BioWare allow plot / character changes?
A: Yes, we are working closely with BioWare on the development of this project.
Q: Would you consider Daft Punk to do the soundtrack?
A: We love Daft Punk, but it’s too early to say who will produce the soundtrack.
